Subject

Southern / Appalachian / Four-couple squares

Description

Phil Jamison calls at the Dare To Be Square weekend held November 18-20, 2011, at the John C. Campbell Folk School, Brasstown, NC. The basic "Divide the Ring" sequence has the leading couple cutting off six people, then four, then two; this variation, by Louis Wiles, introduces a corner swing each time through for the other three couples, making it a much more active dance for everyone.

Musicians are Steve Hickman and Jim Morrison, fiddles; Claudio Buchwald, piano, Sam Bartlett, banjo. The tune is "Mississippi Sawyer."
